Habib Bank Plaza (now HBL Plaza), located in Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan, is the head office of Habib Bank. It was the tallest building in Asia while still under construction between 1963-68. It was also the tallest building in South Asia until its completion in 1972. It remained the tallest building in Pakistan for four decades until the 116m tall MCB Tower was built.
The Habib Bank Plaza remained Pakistan's tallest building for 42 years until MCB Tower was completed in 2005.
After 2005, MCB's landmark tower became the tallest building of Pakistan with 29 floors and a helipad on top.
